The programme provides 'state of the art'- knowledge in modern financial economics, including asset pricing, risk management, international finance and monetary policy, and financial regulation.
This programme provides you with 'state of the art'- knowledge in modern financial economics, including asset pricing, risk management, international finance and financial regulation. The focus is less on theoretical modelling and more on the application of these concepts in the real world. The programme includes recent developments in behavioral finance and courses on institutional effects and cultural biases. This unique focus equips students not only with traditional approaches in finance, but also with a sound understanding of human behaviour in financial markets.

Graduates are well equipped for careers in banking or investment, consulting in financial or finance-related sectors and in multinational firms where (inter)national financial markets play an important role, or for careers in central banks, finance ministries or supra-national institutions, such as the IMF or World Bank.
